About a year ago I got a TON of minky fabric because I really wanted to make the girls some big blankets! I am NOT a great sewer, the only experience I have is a high school sewing class I took 10 years ago (wierd) which I did not do very well in! I am also an impatient sewer, which made this a tough project for me to take on, and also why it took me almost a year to finally get it done! But here they are! I am very proud of them, and once I got the hang of it, I really enjoyed it! My girls really love them too, so that makes everything all worth it!
